Event Details

Nazareth, with a population of about 100,000 is the biggest Arab city in Israel. It is the heart of the Galilee, one of the richest agricultural areas in all of today’s Israel.

The citizens of Nazareth are Israeli citizens – but they are predominantly Christian and Muslim. They are the descendants of those who avoided the “ethnic cleansing” of Palestine when Israel took over the area in 1948. But even as Israeli citizens, they have to continually struggle for equality – for good quality education, for jobs, for housing and for social services. They face considerable discrimination as non-Jews, in “the Jewish state of Israel”.

Jonathan Cook has lived in Nazareth for 11 years. He is married to a Palestinian Israeli. He knows what he is talking about. He will describe what the obstacles facing Israel’s Palestinian minority tell us about the State of Israel today.
